Green Sneakers


I realize it's super duper clean and simple, however, I can just see Rambo and I hollering at Jim to say Happy Valentine's Day.  Not that he'd hear us anyway though.  This will be for Jim for Valentine's this year.  I've never given him a romantic card at all and don't think he'd expect it this year either.  Gotta keep him smiling.

The stamp is from Art Impressions and is actually one of their 'front and back' stamps.  Using just the 'front' of the stamp, I left off her right hand.  (She's got it on the other side of the little doxie holding him up I suppose).  I'd never carrying Rambo this way though because doxies already have too many back problems.  Anyway, I colored this in Copics and then got down to the shoes......Oh groan!  What color do I use.  Brown probably would have been the color most normal people would use but thought I'd give her a little class and color them green.  I mean, wouldn't everyone LOVE some green sneakers - or do you already have some?!

I used two tiny snippets (the pink heart and the strip of patterned paper down the side on this so think it may qualify for the challenge at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.   It's a great challenge and I really wanted to enter a couple of cards this week, but it just didn't happen.  Hopefully I can next week though.

Thanks for stopping by..........and have a great weekend.

Her sneakers match the flower on her hat, which is always a good thing. This card has just the right amount of everything. The slim strip of paper the heart and the darling colored image. I happen to think it is perfect.
Hope you have a good weekend. PS like Rambo's coat. LOL

You always come up with some of the most amusing and fun cards, and this young miss looks so cool in her green sneaks!! Poor pooch - I dunno if he's more upset with being forced to wear the sweater, or being carried where he can't fight back! LOL Funny stuff Lynn - thanks for the chuckles :)

Liz said...

Just love this CAS card. What a fabulous image! xx

MaryH said...

This is my idea of how an ole lady should look (aside from the way she's carrying that doxie...Chuch would never stand for this either). The green shoes add a lot of funky fun. Glad to see you are taking your snippets over to the Playground. I'm hearing some rumors about the hi jinx going on there, so best take Rambo along for per-tec-shun. Cute card. TFS & Have a super weekend. Jim will love this..

Susan said...

Super card, Lynn! Now while it may look like Rambo, it certainly doesn't favor you, my beautiful friend - LOL But this is a wonderful CAS card :)

Lori Kobular said...

Oh I love those green sneakers! It really gives her that polished look! This card is so sweet and funny and I am sure Jim will love it! Love that the doxie is all decked out for Valentine's Day too!

NanaConnie said...

Lynn, I DO have green tennies! But no Rambo, even if that lady does look just like me. lol Love the card, my friend, and I think it's a perfect Valentine.

Nancy in Iowa said...

What an adorable card! Great job with the coloring! And who wouldn't love green sneakers!?
Happy Valentine's Day to you, Jim, and Rambo of course! I think of you often. Hope things are a little less rough these days.

Prayers come your way frequently,
Nancy

I love this one Lynn, the image is wonderful and your coloring is perfect! I love when Im home I can wear the craziest things and mismatched stuff and WHO cares, my puppies love me green shoes and all lol!

lauren bergold said...

pretty sure you've totally started a trend for green tennies now... they look SO COOL on your gorgeous card. & when you say "CAS" --which it is, design-wise-- you kind of leave out the fact that you've done a masterpiece job of coloring, shading and hilighting here. not so simple, actually, tho you make it look easy! (holy wow, i am NOT a color-er, so every time you do this i'm green... like a tennis shoe... with envy missus!) ♥♥♥
